Eight Steps to Starting a Glamping Business in Australia

Want to start a Glamping Business in Australia? Here is everything you need to know! 

Starting a Glamping business in Australia is an exciting opportunity these days! It starts with a passion, concept, or vision and is the foundation of everything. Owning a Glamping business is more than just a side hustle and offers customers unique and authentic outdoor experiences. To ensure success, it’s essential to have a solid business plan in place. Here are eight steps to help you launch your own Glamping business in Australia:  

1. Finding the ideal location

The first step is to find the perfect spot to set up your glamping tents. The more unique and special the location, the better for your business. Customers will come for the exceptional landscape or features, share photos and ultimately recommend it to family and friends.  It’s important to consider the site’s accessibility to water, electricity, and wastewater or substitutes.

2.  Applying for licenses

The rules for obtaining building permits vary by state in Australia, depending on the zoning of your site. Residential zoning can be challenging, so farmland or recreational land (such as vineyards) are typically the easiest.

3. Choosing the right product

With so many options available, it’s essential to determine which glamping items best suit your brand. Consider factors such as facilities, return on investment, and maintenance when selecting a product.

4. Selecting a provider

Australia has several vendors who provide glamping goods and tents. Be sure to understand the differences between companies and their offerings, such as the quality of canvas, payment methods, and level of service.

5. Designing the interior

One of the exciting parts of starting a glamping business is designing the interior of your glamping tents. You can style and decorate it however you like, but keep in mind factors such as sustainability, amenities, and tailoring it to your target audience. Get some inspiration online for kitchen and bathroom designs, to eco-friendly features like composting toilets and luxury items like outdoor bathtubs and saunas.

6. Funding your glamping venture

Be sure to consider all additional expenses, such as sewage, garbage disposal, and cleaning when applying for financing. The return on investment should typically not take more than two years due to the tremendous potential and significant demand for glamping experiences.

7. Setting a competitive price

Once your glamping tents have been paid for, delivered, installed and decorated, it’s time to set a price for them. Setting a price can be challenging, but it’s important not to undervalue your products. Take into consideration the costs of running the business and the competition in the market.

8. Promoting your glamping business

Your target market will greatly impact how you promote your glamping accommodation. Utilize websites and apps to promote your business and handle reservations. You may also need an external reservation system, depending on the size of your business. Additionally, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram are great opportunities for online promotion. Don’t forget to inform your local tourist information centre about your business.
